Three quick things this week:
- Starting today through the weekend I am attending virtual AWP (Association of Writers & Writing Programs) sessions as often as I can. My first session: Revisiting History: Diverse Approaches to Historical Fiction.
- For six weeks I’ve been facilitating a cancer survivor writing group, Healing Words/Spoken Words, sponsored by the Cancer Institute of New Jersey. It’s been a great experience to get our emotions onto the page through poetry, audio (e.g., Debussy’s “Clair de Lune”), and visual prompts (photographs and watercolor paintings). Two more weeks in this cycle.
- I’ve signed up for a few more Creative Nonfiction Wednesday webinars. You can find the list of upcoming events here.
I’ve now received both doses of the Moderna vaccine and look forward to seeing my granddaughter next month at her one-year-old birthday party!
Mazel tov! Enjoy that precious grandbaby. I’m working with cancer patients too at Texas Children’s and it brings so much joy and gratitude–a perk of the writing life.
